YRDC is a branch of the New York Research Data Center which is a Federal Statistical Research Data Center.

The guest speakers will be Negasi T. Beyene from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Shirley H. Liu, Economist and Administrator for the New York Federal Statistical Research Data Centers, Baruch Center for Economic Studies, U.S. Census Bureau.
Mr. Beyene will present the array of Nation Centers for Health Statistics (NCHS) datasets and address specific questions about each, including the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). Ms. Liu will give an overview of the YRDC and the Census Bureau partners. She will also discuss available nonpublic data and datasets, as well as, the proposal and access criteria in using the Census Bureau data. The presentation is geared toward faculty and graduate students, with a slant toward those in the health-related fields, but is open to the wider Yale community.
